This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Pollyanna Burl (Irvingia malayana) with Black Palm (Borassus flabellifer) cap. Pollyana is a SE Asia species with mango-like, edible fruit. The tree is very large, tall with buttress-like roots. This awe inspiring species is considered sacred by the mountain people of Vietnam. The wood is very hard and dense, valued for heavy construction. Pollyana burl has beautiful swirling pattern and subtle color variation. The Black palm cap adds contrast and visual interest with it's unique pattern. I like this one!
A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap makes this nature inspired box extra special and ensures that your content is secured, good for jewelry, keepsake... Through the ages, people has given out acorns as symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
